Website Founded May 21, 2012
This website was utilized as a communications and tracking mechanism for a joint Complaint to the U.S. Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General (DODIG) concerning forced transfer issues at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). In essence, the complaint alleged fraudulent behavior by NCIS senior management, including accusations of an unauthorized reduction-in-workforce effort that coerced employees to leave through the use of forced transfers. Since the initial complaint, dozens of additional agents joined the original 20 complainants as whistleblowers by telling their stories to DODIG. On April 3, 2013, the DODIG advised the investigation was complete and both subjects were notified.

On February 28, 2014, the FOIA process officially failed to shed any light on this investigation and its influence which likely contributed to the selection of a new NCIS Director from outside the agency. We must now be content with the positive new leadership of Director Traver as he steers the Ship towards calmer and more bountiful waters.
At the end of the day, the forced transfer issues which prompted this Complaint are being remedied and addressed, and maybe that's all we could ask for. Thank you to all of you who participated in this journey!
- Morrison out!
On February 28, 2014, DODIG issued its final FOIA response to Morrison. The 119 pages consisted of Morrison's interview transcript (111 pages) and congressional and investigation conclusion letters (8 pages). All of the content was heavily redacted (see DODIG letter and enclosed content in the Document Library). In addition to the redacted material provided, the letter stated "Also, I determined approximately 2,806 pages should be withheld from release in their entirety...The withheld pages primarily consist of the Report of Investigation and interview transcripts."
